greatest insult of all. >> obama will make his first trip to israel as president. >> the white house hasn't released details of his trip but israeli media says he's visiting this spring. >> stephen: oh, so now obama thinks he can wipe out his shameful record of never visiting israel by visiting israel. [laughter] it's a chonda! don't fall for it, my chosen brethren, my he-bros. [laughter] he doesn't get you. [cheers and applause] this man doesn't get it. israel is a divided country that feels beseiged by terrorists, and whose politics are increasingly dictated by a small, hard-right minority. obama can't relate to that! [laughter] and if you need more proof that the president is no friend of israel, just do the math: back in 2007, president bush supported israel with $2.3 billion in foreign military aid. this year, president obama wants to bring that down to just $3.1 billion. [laughter] i know, it looks like it's going up, but remember, in hebrew you read charts from right to left. [cheers and applause] all right?

. for more on president obama's trip, i am joined now by the former jordanian former minister, and i want to pick up where we left off. president obama went to israel with an 11% approval rating. during the charm offensive the past couple days, he has probably improved his standing amongst the israeli people. does that matter in terms of the peace process? pretty well ifid his objective was to have a charm offensive. i think he did pretty well in speaking to the israelis about their needs of security, particularly not just related to the peace process but iran as well. but i think there is a key phrase the president used, you must create the change that you want to see. i think that is a phrase that can be applied not just to the palestinians and the israelis but the u.s. itself. if the u.s. is not creating the change it wants to see, i am afraid the two parties on the messages,erful as the simply does not have the time or the will to do that in the short time that we have before the to- state solution dies. >> critics of president obama said he has given fantastic speeches, and we h
